I got my yarn! and pattern! and lots of other little bits so I can start wrapping!

I just "happened" to walk through the craft section of John Lewis and found the yarn I wanted to get for less than I thought it would be!

yay!  Grin

Hello all!! I am the lucky first person to post pictures in the gallery! Prepare to be jealous and get those wisting fingers ready! I really apologize for the amount of pictures....


I came home Friday to find this huge box from Princesspimp!

This is what it looked like when I opened it! So much goodies packed in there! Hmm wonder what it looks like under that fabric.....

A Magic Yarn Ball!!! or as I like to call it a magic yarn brick! It was less ball shape! I forgot to take a picture of it out of the box though... slight excitement on my part!

A beautiful crochet hook roll was tucked along side of my yarn ball!

She sent along 2 patterns, the yarn is for the suede bag straight off of my wist! She sent this lovely blue Lion Brand Suede yarn! Its so soft!

Here is a picture of the lovely crochet items that she made! A Capricorn kitty, a Black Forrest Cake box, a little toast bag with egg scrubbies, a little blueberry pouch with peeps chapstick inside and a tide pool pouch with octopus finger puppets inside!
Here are some close ups:







Some yummy chocolates! This is the biggest bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs I have ever had! If I keep getting chocolate in swaps I will never have to buy for myself again! I looooove the chocolate! My boyfriend had his (the rittersport) the night the package came!

Some yummy lotion. roll on perfume and an ice cream cone body wash!


All the other goodies! The bag handles she said might not work for the one bag, but I am determined to make them work for the second pattern she sent, they are just so cute!

And just because I feel spoiled a group shot!

This is probably one of the coolest swaps! I had so much fun unraveling everything! It was so neat to see what was inside! Thank you again Princesspimp, everything rocked! I can't wait for you to see what I have planned!

P.s. this is what not to do when unraveling your MYB! I highly recommend either winding it into a ball as you go or put it down a little less scattered because you end up with this mess that took me an hour and a half to fix:

Keep in mind this is 2 balls of yarn!

Okay, so how much fun was that to unwrap???    (the ball, not the tangled mess of yarn.)   Cheesy  I think we have all had our days undoing knots.  I sure know that I have!

Love the package!  Cadbury mini eggs are delish and that little cake box is super cute!
